New Johns Hopkins Libraries Open Access Initiative

Submitted by Alonzo LaMont on Tue, 06/30/2015 - 4:36pm

As of July 1st the Johns Hopkins University Libraries will launch an open access data fund that supports data deposit in the JHU Data Archive. This is a great option for any researcher who is looking for a data sharing and archiving solution to meet a publisher or funder data access requirement, particularly for a dataset that supports or underlies a publication. (Note: all data collections deposited in the JHU Data Archive are assigned a DOI.)

The Open Access Data Fund will cover archiving service fees for Johns Hopkins researcher data deposited in the JHU Data Archive.

This fund will cover the same data archiving services provided by the JHU Data Management Services unit as described under the unit’s Small Data Collections Archiving Service.  These services provide for the archival and sharing of research data in the course of one small project; for example, the data associated with a publication.

Interested Johns Hopkins researchers can go to the Open Access Data Fund webpage for more information on the criteria for and application to use this fund.  They can also contact us at datamanagement@jhu.edu for information.
